Building and Executing and Integration Strategy in Eskom Distribution
This is a brief history of the Integration Approach in Eskom Distribution covering organisational challenges and strategy as well as the subsequent evolution of the Enterprise Architecture function. Building and executing an EAI strategy has had consequent impacts on all aspects of the organisation. For an organisation with a reasonably mature level of process adoption, the embedment of the technology and its role in achieving business success was a struggle with many unintended benefits being realised. Assessing this with hindsight, extremely valuable insights have been gained which have been used to strengthen the overall divisional business which subsequently led to the Enterprise Architecture function becoming more agile to respond to the new demands of a divisional business strategy keen on extracting the benefits achieved previously.
